Oscar Pistorius
' older brother faces up to 15 YEARS in the slammer for allegedly killing a female biker during a fatal car crash -- this according to new reports.

Carl Pistorius has been charged with culpable homicide -- according to eNCA news, a South African TV channel -- stemming from a car crash in 2010, in which prosecutors say his reckless driving led to the death a motorcyclist.

Carl's lawyer recently told the station that Carl "deeply regrets the accident," but was adamant his client was not drunk at the the time of the collision, adding, "There is no doubt that [he] is innocent and the charge will be challenged in court."

According to reports, Carl's trial was set to begin last Thursday -- the same day his brother Oscar (who is facing a charge of premeditated murder in the death of Reeva Steemkamp) was freed on bail -- but it was postponed until next month.

Women should stay far away from this family. They seem to like killing. Let's just hope they don't get away with it.

It's too bad. The homicide conviction rate in South Africa is one-third of America's. They can both make vacation plans for this summer, that's for sure.

I need more information than what is being reported on the web everyplace. If this was a 2010 culpable homicide - why has this been dropped and reinstated and scheduled for trial for last thursday and postponed and yet - not one journalist had this story for three years?! When was it dropped and when reinstated? Is South Africa run by this family? I mean, it's been "confirmed by the lawyer" representing both of them - right after the bail is set! But the Olympics and Nike billboards wouldn't have made this case a news item prior to this? Like there is no freedom of the press in South Africa at all. Or is it like England where you cannot post on the sites because of legal reasons now. Huh? I was posting about Brangelina but no one can slander in this case?! Was this story was held in an agreement with the familia until now? There have not been any unconfirmed reports. Are trial dockets are secret there? What else ade they covering up besides previous domestic violence assault (not charged but why not reported), drunken boating crash into the ICU with witnesses of drinking and biating, now sibling homicide...I'm done. Does a Nike endorsement buy you a clean image and this wacky idea that you're the breadwinner which could be hard on a family, according to the Magistrate's b.s. extraordinary reason for bail. Stop. Breathe. Okay.
